Park City Quilt Festival

April 20th, 2009

I’m like that one annoying member of a quilt guild - who every year when it’s time for the annual quilt show… is late with her quilts for hanging.  So here I’m late to the party that EVERYONE has a quilt hanging in.  So in case you’re like me and didn’t know… Amy of Park City Girl is hosting a Blogger’s Quilt Festival.  A virtual one.  How cool is THAT!   And it’s huge.  HUGE.  Über HUGE.

So in my mind… the picturesque Main St. of Park City is lined with everyone’s favorite quilt.   Beautiful quilts.  Beautiful friends.  It’s like visiting everyone with their favorite quilt (and some with an extra one they’ve snuck in, like, ahem, moi).  The weather is glorious in Park City in my mind as I stroll from quilt to quilt, and the question I ask each friend at their quilt… “so where are we having lunch?”

Amy’s Quilt Festival even has sponsors/vendors (just to name a few… like Jona, Anina, Kathy and Kim).   It’s just like an IRL quilt show - but there’s a piece of monitor glass in the way to keep me from touching the quilts (yes, I touch).  No judging, no lunching (bummer) - just beloved quilts.   This is so fun, so be sure to check it out.    And knock, knock, knock… I think we should ask these guys to pony up a weekend in Park City - and it has nothing to do with the fact that Park City is on my Must Visit Wish List.

Amy asks us to show our favorite quilt.  Mine is my Roly Poly Circus.  All hand embroidered and hand quilted.  It took me fooooooor-evah to make it, but I loved every second of it.  I’ve written about it previously here.
Roly Poly Circus
My snuck-in-quilt is my Irish Tea Party quilt.  Also hand embroidered and hand quilted - and also colored with crayons. This is a BOM from Crabapple Hill (or as I like say ala Simpson-glish… Cra-Bapple Hill) called “Tea Party“, (the Irish Chain is my own setting).  I had SO MUCH FUN making the blocks, and even better… it was a group BOM project in my Redwork group. Handwork and friends… nothing’s better then that.

My photo doesn’t do it justice, and the pretty fabrics are from In The Beginning, and I can’t remember the line name. It’s been a while since I made this. I entered this quilt in my guild’s annual show (and yes, I got it there on time) and I won a blue ribbon on it. WOW! Moi… with a blue ribbon! And yeah, I soooooo had that sucker pinned to my hoddie for like a month.

    Darling quilts. You are truly a talented woman. Love this idea! I have been teaching at a needlework retreat in Park City for the past 4 years. (Unfortunately the shop that hosted the event me, has closed!!! sob, sob, sob!) I’m planning to find a way to get there again in the fall, because the place is so much fun!!! The only problem might be trying to pick a place to have lunch. So many fab choices!

    I say we just stroll down main street until we look in a window that looks good. And you know…if we’re in Park City, we’ll probably be able to get hubby to come along — you know, being the place where famous people hang out and all.

    Your quilts are GORGEOUS! Superb. Just like everything you do! Now stop it. You’re making me drool and that’s just so unattractive!

  27. The fabulous jam allegedly said:

    Love both quilts but especially the Tea Party. Someday I might try to make a scalloped edge. Your workmanship is fantastic! A blue ribbon is definitely in order.

  28. The fabulous Candace allegedly said:

    I love Park City, Monica, but I love your two quilts more….if I were you I’d get that Blue Ribbon for Tea Party out every so often and wear it proudly!

  29. The fabulous Miri allegedly said:

    Great quilts! I love the Roly Poly Circus and have used some of the designs in quilts but never the whole set–it looks wonderful and I love the scalloped edge!

    The second quilt is also wonderful-just beautiful. Love the crayon coloring!

  30. The fabulous AnyoneCanQuilt allegedly said:

    Ooooooh I love your quilts! Everything you make is gorgeous though. A visit to Happy Zombie town is always uplifting and inspirational…and silly and fun. I love visiting. x

  31. The fabulous pamela allegedly said:

  36. The fabulous Nanna allegedly said:

    I had no idea about the quilt festival, either, but then computer woes and other things have kept me away from BlogLand. I love your quilts! Beautiful-ness.
    p.s. I’m ready for lunch ANYTIME!!

  37. The fabulous Rhonda allegedly said:

    Excellent work that you’ve done.

  38. The fabulous Busy Little Quilter allegedly said:

    I’ve chaired 3 quilt shows and I love quilters who come in at the last minute with quilts. The reason why is sometimes people get lazy and don’t want to sew on a sleeve or they didn’t finish the quilt in time, so they come to quilt registration with only one of the quilts they entered. And it helps that the person who comes in at the last minute has beautiful quilts like yours! Your work is fantastic.

    Thanks for the love you sent my way on my Quilt Festival post! I love you, too! Yes, I will have lunch with you!!!

  39. The fabulous Susan Ramey Cleveland allegedly said:

    They were well worth waiting for. I especially love the Tea Party quilt. So feminine.

  40. The fabulous Nanette allegedly said:

    The quilts are lovely. And of course the embroidery is impressive. Especially because I embroider like a primitive child. And I don’t mean to! I love the comment about the ribbon on your hoodie. Sounds like something I would do! haha Hmm Lunch in Park City? I had a gellato there a year ago.

  41. The fabulous Amy @ parkcitygirl allegedly said:

    Love your post! So glad you joined in the fun :) The weather has been beautiful here this week - shorts, sunscreen, all that! Lunch on a patio would be amazing - I think Cafe Terigo has a nice menu to go with that patio!!

    About your quilts — beautiful! I love the redwork, and the circular shape to each of the designs. Congrats on your ribbon for the other one too - so pretty!

    Thanks for sharing :)

  42. The fabulous Carolyn allegedly said:

    Your quilts are GORGEOUS! If the pictures don’t do them justice, they’re even prettier than I can imagine. :)

  43. The fabulous Penny G allegedly said:

  44. The fabulous Kristina allegedly said:
